This is a new series of weekly posts that will highlight requests that are sent to us from users looking for a certain tool or functionality. In many cases the tools are either just not there, someone has not thought of it yet, not possible to acheive or the solution has been completely overlooked by us. This would a good place for suggestions, links, directions and offers of help. I will not post the requesters contact information unless expressly asked to do so. If you have asked us for help and see your request in the list, please check back this post or subscribe to the comments. If you need help or have a request or a question that you would like added, please use the Contact Form in the top menu or email one of the authors of this blog. There will be a single WP WishList post per week and only if there are enough requests in the week.
Disclaimer: This is meant for those that have tried to find a solution, posted on the WordPress Support Forums, searched the web and have still not found the solution they were looking for. If the answer is blatant and can be easily searched and found, you might find your requests ignored. This is not meant for help or support of existing tools, nor is it aimed towards paid development or support. This is mostly an idea generation tool for WordPress developers who are looking to write new plugins, widgets, tools and hacks and for the community to use in case they are sorely missing a feature/plugin/widget they would love to have.
This weeks requests for ideas include:
- A Sidebar Archives plugin or widget that reduces the use of vertical space, displays somewhat detailed, intuitive and useful archive links and is not very load intensive. Fancy Archives have been tested and load proved to be an issue for this user.
- The ability to include pages in reverse chronological order along with regular posts in the feed of a blog. A plugin would be fantastic, a hacked feed generator could also be nice. Note: this is not about generating a feed for a single page but including pages in the regular WordPress feed along with regular posts.
